Our goal is to make a computer program that interacts with human improvising musicians to automatically co-author music in real time using machine learning. This real-time interactive system will contribute to and draw from already existing branches of study in music composition and computer science. From computer science, the system will apply techniques from Music Information Retrieval (MIR) and Machine Learning to analyze and generate musical content. Within the domain of music composition, our piece aims to develop an interactive digital framework for gesture-based music improvisation.

SyllabiPy was created by Alex Estes and Christopher Hench at the University of California, Berkeley in 2015. Alex and Christopher are graduate students in the German Department interested in linguistic forces operating in literature, and the tools of the Digital Humanities.
This pedagogy project seeks to integrate approaches to and tools from the Digital Humanities into the Ethnic Studies undergraduate curriculum. In particular, this work will explore incorporating digital approaches into Ethnic Studies 101B: Humanities Methods in Ethnic Studies, a mandatory undergraduate methods course in the Chicano/Latino Studies, Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies, Native American Studies, and Comparative Ethnic Studies majors.
Adrian Freed and Lisa Wymore are working together with a small team of creative engineers and artists to make a digital platform that has a low threshold of entry. The system would allow people interested in embodied actions, gesture, sensation, bodily expression, etc. to enter the space and build digital instruments that are activated by a variety of sensor and camera based inputs.
The Future of Memory: Jewish Culture in the Digital Age is a new project of The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life that includes an installation, exhibition, and digital research lab in which museum professionals, scholars, students, and the public, discuss the meaning of memory and the many facets of digital history.
